The Ri Boku Army is an army led by one of the Three Great Heavens of Zhao Ri Boku.

History[edit | edit source]

Ri Boku is a Great General from Zhao, before he made a name for himself he was mostly known for subdueing the Xiongnu threat to the north which constantly raids the northern part of Zhao, which no other general could. While serving at the region of Ganmon, the Ri Boku army's cavalry had acquired horsemanship of an equal level to the Northen horseman tribes. This skill would prove to be a huge advantage in future battles.

Story[edit | edit source]

Battle of Bayou Arc[edit | edit source]

Ri Boku's army was introduced during Zhao's invasion in Qin. While remaining in the shadows at first, when the Zhao army was about to be attacked by both sides and seemed cornered, the Ri Boku army appeared and attacked Ou Ki's army from the rear, revealing that the great general Ri Boku was the mastermind behind the invasion all along.

Coalition Invasion Arc[edit | edit source]

Battle of Kankoku Pass[edit | edit source]

After setting the initiative for the creation of the coalition army, Ri Boku set his army at the far left part of the battlefield, right against the army of general Duke Hyou. On the night of the 15th day, Ri Boku, seemingly frustrated by Chu's failure, took his army and departed from headquarters.

Battle of Sai[edit | edit source]

It was later revealed that Ri Boku had been sending portions of his army each day through a secret mountain passage that lead to the middle of the southern pass to Kanyou. After joining his army himself, Ri Boku conquered city after city in his path reaching closer and closer to his goal, the Qin capital. However, Duke Hyou's instinct leads him to follow Ri Boku and he managed to meet his army just before they reached Kanyou. The Qin then rallied a last stand in the city of Sai, where even the Ei Sei, the king of Qin joined the fighting. The Ri Boku army had to besiege Sai, in order to destroy Qin completely. But their siege ring was broken by the mountain people, that came to aid Qin. The Ri Boku army had to retreat.

Western Zhao Invasion Arc[edit | edit source]

He led the defense of Western Zhao. He tried to request King Tou Jou to reinforce him with the Kantan army but rebuffed. He instead takes Shun Sui Ju to command Ryouyou's defense with the city forces. While he led the Atsuyo defense.

Battle at Shukai Plains[edit | edit source]

He divided his army into fronts: Ki Sui Army under Ki SuiKin Mou and Ba Nan Ji on the left, Gyou'un, Chou Ga Ryuu and Gaku Ei on the right, and himself on center.

He sent his trusted adjutant Shun Sui Ju and Kou Son Ryuu to assist Rozo and Quanrong against Yo Tan Wa Army and Heki Army.


Both groups lost many of their men. However, the deaths of Rozo and Hou Ken were the final nail in the coffin. King Tou Jou, commanded Ri Boku's arrest. The Ri Boku army, however, didn't take this light, and as a result, they dispersed towards Kantan after learning of their leader's arrest.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

They launched attacks against Tou Jou's loyalists in order to rescue their leader, but in many cases, they were set up by the loyalists.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Due to the fierce clashes between the northern Xiongnu tribes in that region, their cavalry acquired horsemanship of an equal level to the Xiongnu.

All the officers in the army are well educated in warfare and capable of quickly reading the enemy's formations and reacting accordingly even without Ri Boku's command. The army is also capable of performing advanced military formations like Ryuudou and Great Crane Formation. 


After the encounter with Duke Hyou, Ri Boku was able to deconstruct and decipher the mechanism of how instinctual types commanders wage war. He then hammered that knowledge into the strategical type soldiers under his command. Emerging from that crucible was a new hybrid army, one that combined the strengths of both the strategical and instinctual.
